Interpersonal Spatial Arrangements

  • Interpersonal Spatial Arrangements - Roanna Wells
    Interpersonal Spatial Arrangements look at the way in which we, as a human species, have the power to express common thought, opinion and appreciation through the act of coming together to form crowds. The process takes an initial aerial image and abstracts the human element from the larger picture. By representing people as individual stitches, ultimately linked together as a continuous thread and embedded into the structure of the work, similarities are made to the way society and civilisation can join together and speak as one voice.
